Art History

Georges Fouquet

In 1895, Georges Fouquet (French, 1862–1957) took over the Paris jewelry firm established in 1860 by his father. Reinvigorating it with a decidedly modern spirit, he continued to supply his fashionable clientele with exquisite jewelry in the latest styles through the 1930s.

 

Description

Many influences contributed to the French Art Deco style. One was the exoticism of the Far East, typified by a theatrical Fouquet dress ornament (ca. 1923) in the Museum’s collection. Its unexpected colors and materials, including Asian jade, onyx, diamonds, enamel, and platinum, are combined in the motif of a Chinese mask. The extraordinarily large scale of the jewel suggests that it was probably intended to be a tour-de-force exhibition piece. Our elegant brooch is adapted from this magnificent ornament. Rhodium overlay, hand enameled, with dyed jade, jet glass, and glass stones. Imported. 3 3/4”L x 1 5/8”W.
